Amid FaZe Clan’s Nasdaq debut — the first for an esports organization — and ongoing moves for creator exclusivity by top streaming platforms, gaming remains a core sector of the creator economy.
Nearly 3.2 billion people will play games in 2022, according to Newzoo, which valued the gaming industry at $197 billion.
